The Holy Green Nationstates Isle of Ko-oren is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dhunerin Laurderinthen with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 20.978 billion Ko-orenites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gehrenna and Mayara. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ko-orenite economy, worth a remarkable 2,810 trillion Koronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,984 Koronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ko-oren's national animal is the Dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Monradhity.

Ko-oren is ranked 206,798th in the world and 187th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -12.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
